Andy Warhol had chosen Marilyn Monroe as his model after her death; death had set the seal on her supernatural existence. Apart from Humphrey Bogart and James Dean she appeared to be the only film star whose posthumous fame exceeded by far her popularity in her own lifetime. Andy Warhol certainly contributed his part to this.

On a personal note, I do think Warhol's work of Marilyn is a major reason why even to this day she resonates with so many people. I for one, in my mind's eye, see Warhol's Marilyn first and foremost, before even the white dress.
